    Default Frisco Cement Hopper

    I was trainspotting the other day and could have swore I seen a Frisco three bay cement type hopper being interchanged between the NS and ABS ( Alabama Southern) here in Tuscaloosa. It was only for a moment and I was wasn't in a position to track it down and get closer.
    My question is does anyone know if there is a site or file that list Frisco marked cars still in service? Is there any chance of seeing a Frisco freight car in the middle of a train?

    They are listed under SLSF in the BNSF listing in each Official Railway Equipment Register.

    I just looked in the ABS system and we have not had any SLSF marked cars on line since 2008 and they were all grain hoppers. It could have been a former SLSF car that has been re-marked for another company.
